Chromecast, from Google, makes it easy to enjoy online video and music on your TV. This thumb-sized device plugs into your TV's HDMI port to allow you to send your favourite online shows, films, music and more to your TV using your smartphone, tablet or laptop.
Chromecast makes huddling around a laptop or tablet screen with tiny speakers to watch a movie a thing of the past. Easily enjoy your favourite online content on your HDTV from apps like BBC iPlayer, Netflix, YouTube, Google Play Movies and TV, Google Play Music and the Chrome browser so you can take in movies, TV programmes, music and more in comfort. Chromecast even automatically updates to work with a growing number of apps.
Easy set up
Chromecast is easy to set up: simply plug it into your TV and a USB power source (adapter included) and connect it to Wi-Fi using your laptop, tablet or smartphone app. From there, you can use your chosen device to cast your content straight to your TV with the press of a button. Friends and family connected to your wireless network can get involved too, with no additional set up.
Because Chromecast streams from your device, it uses the interface you're used to control it. Manage playback and volume controls simply and easily with your chosen device, with no need for extra remotes.
